Albany – Empire BlueCross (Empire) today announced that heading into next year, Empire’s 2018 Medicare Advantage HMO plans will be rated four stars – with five stars being the best rating – by the Medicare Star Ratings program issued by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Empire offers these plans in 15 counties throughout New York. Last week, the CMS released their latest Star Ratings, which gives health plans scores for the quality and performance of their services.
“Empire’s continued commitment to giving our members access to high-quality, affordable health care is one of the main reasons our plans achieved high Star Ratings this year,” said Tomas Orozco, president of the company’s Medicare east region. “We are grateful for our network of providers who collaborate with us to ensure that we’re delivering the quality and performance members expect from their health plan. We will continue to partner with our members to ensure we are providing them with the benefits they want, in order to meet their health care and lifestyle needs.”

“We are pleased that CMS has recognized our efforts to improve the health outcomes and experiences of our current plan members and those we hope to have the privilege of serving in the future,” Orozco added.
The CMS’ Medicare Star Rating system rates the quality and performance of Medicare Advantage plans to help consumers and their families compare plans. Medicare Advantage plans are rated on their ability to:
- Help members stay healthy
- Assist members in managing chronic conditions
- Ensure positive member experiences with their health plan
- Achieve member satisfaction
- Provide effective customer service
Additionally, Medicare Advantage and Medicare Prescription Drug Plans are rated on how well they provide medication coverage along a number of factors: customer service, member complaints, member experience with drug plan, and drug safety.
Star Ratings are calculated each year using a scale of one to five stars, and may change from year to year. The annual Medicare Star Ratings are posted online at www.medicare.gov.

Plans purchased during AEP are effective January 1, 2018.

No point downloading this app
If you call after hours it instructs you to download and use the app or call back the next day. But if you download the app it LITERALLY does not allow you to log in. There is no point in downloading this app.
What’s the point of this app?
I’ve been trying to access this app for months now. And it never works. What’s the point of it if I’m never going to be able to log in to view my plan? Don’t download, waste of time.
Doesn’t recognize your member ID
Sooo, pretty useless. Why do they continue to advertise this app on the site when it seems I’m not alone here in not being able to log in.

Working at a frantic pace. The hostess loves to wake up like that. As soon as she finished and lay down for a few more minutes, jumping up briskly, took the whip and drove it. To the floor on all fours, dragged it to the toilet by the leash.Renew your benefits with Empire BlueCross HealthPlus
I was about to go and get ready, when Dimon said that another client had come. Dimon himself asked me to let him go because of leaving for St. Petersburg and gave me the keys so that I could close the hall. Dimon left, and I was left alone to wait for the mysterious client.
